Today yongzhou news (correspondent Gu Jiajia) Today is January 31, 2022, the 29th day of the twelfth lunar month, New Year’s Eve.The streets are decorated with lanterns and every family has pasted Spring Festival couplets, which are very festive.This year is the third year that I have worked in the anti-epidemic post, but I still have not been able to return to my hometown for a New Year’s Eve dinner.In order to prevent and control the epidemic among returnees during the Spring Festival, the city has set up nucleic acid sampling sites at traffic checkpoints. Yongzhou No. 3 Hospital is responsible for the nucleic acid sampling sites in Yongzhou East.In order to successfully complete the external collection task, to ensure that every Yongzhou people have a safe year, the hospital from various departments of the sampling staff 6 plus 6 security guards formed a 12-person Yongzhou east nucleic acid sampling team, I was one of them, 24 hours on duty in yongzhou East sampling point.The sampling task of this assignment has a large workload and many difficulties.When there are a lot of people, continuous sampling needs to be done once for each person, and as the weather gets cold, the hands will generally be too cold to feel.We collected nucleic acid from about 200 people in a daily shift. The largest shift was from 8:00 PM to 2:00 am, and we collected nucleic acid from 700 people in total. Basically, we collected nucleic acid from 2 people a minute without any time for rest.Despite the arduous task, the nucleic acid sampling team of Yongzhou East always keeps full of enthusiasm and provides careful, patient and thoughtful service for the people who come back to Yongzhou.It is well known that nucleic acid sampling has certain risks.We are dealing with people who have returned from all over the country, including people with red and yellow codes who are potentially at risk of infection.Under such circumstances, we must take good personal protection to ensure our own safety.Transportation is also a problem to be overcome.Yongzhou East is far away from the city center, there is no public transport to reach, and it costs a lot to take a taxi back and forth. Moreover, our night shift takes place at two o ‘clock in the morning, so it is difficult to get a bus at this time.In the face of these difficulties, the government and various departments of the hospital gave us strong support.They provided us with sufficient protective materials, purchased heating equipment, cared about our life and physical conditions, and gave real-time feedback to solve all kinds of problems encountered in work.Let our front-line sampling staff feel warm.Distant fireworks firecrackers sounded, has passed 12 o ‘clock in the evening, we in yongzhou east post over the age.With the next shift on duty over the shift, on the way home, I think, there is also a part of our efforts.Spring will blossom, the long winter will pass, and the fight against COVID-19 will be won.We will serve everyone well, no matter what difficulties we encounter, we will do our best, because this is an unforgettable experience, but also a responsibility we shoulder.
